HBO is in Talks with Guillermo Del Toro to Adapt Monster into TV Series

Deadline Hollywood has reported that HBO is in talks with Guillermo Del Toro (Hellboy, Pan’s Labyrinth) to develop a TV series based on the manga Monster.

Del Toro will be co-writing with Stephen Thompson (best known for his writing on Doctor Who and Sherlock.) The project was originally planned for a feature film, but proved too complicated to fit into a normal feature-length time frame. Del Toro was eventually able to convince Naoki Urasawa, the author of Monster, to talk to HBO about a TV series instead.
